Roundabouts are becoming a thing, and another one is set to take shape near Eyota this year. Area residents can visit an open house next week for more information on the project on Highway 42.

I love roundabouts, and I think they do a great job of facilitating traffic. Construction is set to start on May 7th as a roundabout is built at Highway 42 and Olmsted County Road 9. The project will put in detours for those traveling on Highway 42 and County 9 until the project is finished in early July.

If you want more information on how this project could affect you, there will be an open house on Wednesday, April 25th at the Eyota Volunteer Ambulance Station. A MnDOT team will be available to answer any questions you may have from 4-6 pm. Feel free to drop by anytime as there is no formal presentation planned.

You can get more info on the project and the open house HERE.
